Creative Contemporary Pieces




Contemporary Pieces is a personal project that deals with the eroticism, presentation and charisma of paintings from the Renaissance Period. In the Late Renaissance, Italian and Dutch painters dealt with the middle and lower classes. In my opinion, Fast Food Culture represents these two social classes in the United States today. To eat healthy is expensive. However, one can buy large amounts of food at a fast food restaurant for a comparatively low price. Like the old Masters this piece is dealing with transience and beauty. Contemporary Pieces is a series of 10 photographs and was exhibited at Karussell Hamburg in 2013. Since then it was featured by CNN, IGNANT, Der Stern and other publications.
